Ethereum Launches

Posted on .

A few minutes ago, many of you generated and loaded the Ethereum Genesis block, marking the inception of Frontier, the first Live release of the Ethereum project.

The Dev team joins me in thanking each and everyone of you for your support during the past year and half. It’s incredible to see the progress that has taken place since that humble first commit on Christmas Eve 2013. The vision of a censorship-proof ‘world computer’ that anyone can program, paying exclusively for what they use and nothing more, is now a reality.

Many of you will want to get started immediately. Please check out our brand new website for instructions on how to install and run the clients. If you face issues, the first port of call should be our forums. For more detailed information as to what this release includes, please see my previous blog post.

To celebrate the release, we’ll leave you with this new intro video to our project. We hope you enjoy it, and we cannot wait to see what you will build on Ethereum!

Congrats! Waiting for the consensus genesis hash to generate my own genesis block and help secure the network! (like many others I am sure) o/

No genesis block for me. Perhaps its the late hour but trying to follow the two lines of instructions is doing my head on.

Awesome! I’m so stoked! I’m a beginning developer and I’d love to get involved. I have some great ideas, but I fear my coding skills aren’t up to scratch! Any pointers/tips from those out there with more experience?

Thank you, Stephen and all the others! Since I’ve been helping with BitVote on Ethereum for quite some time now, I am pumped to see Ethereum ramp it up and be put to good use.

Who’s talking now, huh? Yeah that’s right: Ether stock plummeting 90% over the past few days. Who else is paying attention? Or is everyone holding their breathe? Where’s my 3.1-bitcoin worth of ether? A simple glitch that will be margin-corrected, or did my 3.1 btc go down the ether hole? My $1,100 was worth $21,054.57 on paper last week…but now it appears to have taken a 73% loss since then. 73%!!!!! Surely this all looks like a horror movie on paper, but please…fellas…you don’t have to remind me that we are responsible for developing the infrastructure for the new millennium and these things take time to reach consensus and blaa-blaa–But do these numbers make sense? Is it that difficult to know that I lost 73% of my capital since it artifificially peaked out just before official release? How do we know what is real and what is not? Is this for the free market to now decide?

At least my $1,100.89 in ether I bought in June 2014 is now worth
5,596.55. That’ not so bad, but what a tease! Fellas….you knew this
would happen, I saw Vitalik predict this in his own words when he said “2000%” 😉 Go Long! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e4068d7ef3566732f7f2f71b1f44a4a6f9e23302095ef8aafe5b7a0f6a8d4736.jpg
